Believe it or not I bought an almost new Meade 8" LX200 GPS and on my third time using it I thought it was attached to the Tripod but it was not. It fell on the ground and the OTA, declination drive, and Finder scope bracket were totalled. I have the other pieces. Anyone looking to upgrade to a larger scope using the same tripod and accessories and want to sell their 8" OTA? Located in Southeastern Connecticut.
